    Hi FilmOnly,
    I have both blades. But, the only problems I have had at all is with the rewind crank. It slips out of shaft/alignment sometimes when rewinding (humidty/heat expansion, 24 exp vs. 36, dont' know). Major pain in the ass getting it back in, especially when you forgot how you fixed it the last time. It has happened twice on my titanium model, which is older plastic/medal and may be related to it. Don't sweat the blades, shoot and compose my friend.

    Not much difference other than the slightly faster flash sync speed and the availability of the aluminum shutter. The FM2n doesn't actually even have an "n" in it's name on the body.
    Plus the focusing screen being brighter, as well as the hot shoe being of the newer type with the squared off metal spring piece. One interesting tidbit, however, the FM2 will synch @ 1/250, as mentioned on Leonard Foo's site linked above. It's just that the ready light will flash if used with a Nikon dedicated flash unit.

    The "N" is not in the name but in the serial number. The serial number of an FM2n starts with an N. Exceptions are cameras where the top-cover has been replaced (had one).

    They are my favorite cameras. I have used them both for many years with no problems.

    The only difference I've noticed between the two types of shutters is that the honeycomb version can catch a little more dust..harder to clean when necessary...which is very very rare.
    I started using them when the FM was discontinued...in ....a ..what year?...

    Interesting..I know this discussion is about the FM2,but my FM, # 3341721, has plain blades : no embossing,so presumably aluminum ?
